Oriental Daily

Some 4,500 staffers of auxiliary agencies including the Leisure and Cultural Services, the Food and Environmental Hygiene department and the Housing Authority have also made it clear that they would not proactively enforce prosecution due to a lack of government support and personal safety issues.
